This little Yarn Remainder Finder can help you figure out the yardage (or meters) remaining at any point in your knitting, but most importantly, what you have left before you start that final section!
Yarn Remainder Finder
What you need to put into the table:
- Original skein weight (in grams, ounces, or other weight)
- Remaining skein weight (same measurement type as the original skein weight)
- Skein yardage (or meters) from the ball band
The maths (that British term works so well) are available to the right in the table so you can see how it is done.
Using the Yarn Remainder Finder
The Yarn Remainder Finder is interactive! In the table, click on the box next to the descriptions for 1, 2, and 3, and enter the needed numbers. The Yarn Remainder Finder will then do the maths for you! The answers appear in the cells with 0 in the blank table. Hit enter after entering the information for 3, and voila! Your yardage is calculated.
Other Tables Related to the Yarn Remainder Finder
This is something I calculate multiple times during a day. In the past I have wanted to put this up, and might have a sheet I create related to a blog post or pattern, but Penny Shima Glanz at Pennywise Consulting found this nifty table-creater plug-in for me. It was so cool, I immediately thought of all the other things I could put into a cool table! Patience paid off (as it usually does, you just have to wait!).
As I get them going, I’ll put links here!
